Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) may take place in two locations — Vice City and South America. While the former is Rockstar’s take on Miami, players will go to South America for a few missions. The game is being referred to at Rockstar as Project Americas.
GTA 6 may, for the first time, include a female protagonist as one of it leads. Though there’s no confirmation if you’ll be able to control multiple characters like you could in GTA V.
The game is slated to be available around 2022. If so, it could possibly signal the end of the PS4 and Xbox One with GTA 6 being their collective swan song as well as it being re-released for the next wave of consoles from Sony and Microsoft as well as the PC.
While GTA 6 might be set in Miami or Vice City, there’s no info on whether it would return to the 1980s or feature GTA: Vice City’s Tommy Vercetti.The report of Vice City and South America couldn’t be further away from a previous rumor that suggested GTA: Tokyo might have been a thing.
Don’t expect Rockstar to say a word about these latest rumors as it’s far too busy with the upcoming release of Red Dead Redemption 2, due in October.
Any official talk of GTA 6 isn’t likely to come a long time after that game’s release, online support and DLC have all been revealed and mapped out.
And then there’s the continued growth of GTA Online, which had its most successful month in December. If that continues to remain extremely profitable, expect it to be a priority of Rockstar and publisher Take-Two.
